Jensen, Mr. and Mrs. Albert (Marriage - 4 March 1961)
The Nazareth Lutheran assembly hall at Withee was the scene of a celebration March 4, honoring Mr. and Mrs. Albert Jensen on their golden wedding anniversary.
In spite of inclement weather, nearly all of the invited guests partook a banquet prepared and served by the ladies of the guild. Covers were laid for 120 friends and relatives.
Later in the afternoon a short program was given, after which came presentation and display of gifts. A buffet lunch was served to all late-comers, as well as the dinner guests.
Mr. and Mrs. Jensen were married March 4, 1911, in Omaha, Neb. by a Lutheran pastor. Mrs. Jensen is the former Ellen Jensen.
They left the day of their marriage for Wisconsin, living west of Withee on Highway 29 for the first eight years, then moving six miles northwest of Withee, where they lived until their retirement a few years ago, when they settled in the village. Six children were born to them; Mrs. William (Edna) Rynkle of Chicago, Mrs. Max (Marie) Calhoun, Libertyville, Ill., Mrs. Raymond (Anna) Oakes of Momence, Ill., Earl of Withee, Jens of Chicago, Ill., and Edward of Chicago Heights. Besides, they have 21 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
All were able to attend except one grandchild, who was ill, and a son-in-law.
Mr. and Mrs. Jensen received many gifts besides the congratulations and well wishes of their many friends.
Guests from out of town besides the family included Mr. and Mrs. Viggo Jensen of Minneapolis; Mr. and Mrs. Herman Blunk of Minneapolis, and Mr. and Mrs. John Nagel of Chicago.
